Icelandair Wants You to Live Out Your Game of Thrones Fantasies


By Neal Broverman

The airline is offering a package to northern Iceland, the filming site for the HBO fantasy drama.

The hyper-violent and sexually-adventurous HBO drama Game of Thrones is a fan favorite of many LGBT television viewers. For the truly devoted, Icelandair is offering a Game of Thrones-themed package starting at $1,425 from two East Coast cities.

Departing Newark and Washington, D.C., the trip includes time in the cosmopolitan capital of Reykjavik, as well as the northern town of Akuryeri and Lake Myvatn, a "beautiful lake area in the northeast surrounded by mysterious lava fields" where the third and fourth seasons were filmed. The tour includes trips to the show's "famed ice wall," and tours of the "Seven Kingdoms" with a local guide, the same person that advised the Thrones crew.

Other highlights: "Visit the areas where Night's Watchmen, including Samwell Tarly and Lord Commander Mormont, are attacked by the White Walkers. Walk the land that Jon Snow, Ygritte and the Free Folk cross to reach the Wall. Visit the cave where Jon Snow and Ygritte have their first intimate romantic encounter. Learn about how the Free Folk, like the ancient Vikings, lived and survived in their harsh environment."
